"Tony is a wise and gentle soul and a great listener. He has worked with me to help me develop spiritual practices that will help me with my ministry and my own spiritual seeking. I cannot recommend him highly enough."
- Rev. Sam Teitel, First Unitarian Church of Memphis (Church of the River), client
"I have found Tony to be a wonderful Spiritual director. He starts at looking at where my strengths are and then moves from there. Also he has a great sense of humor."
- Rev. Jennifer Hamlin-Navias, First Unitarian Universalist Society of Syracuse, client
"Tony is a sensitive listener and thoughtful in crafting sessions and his recommendations for spiritual growth. He’s also got a great sense of humor! "
-Rev. Catie Scudera, First Parish in Needham, client
I have had Tony come and speak at a number of committee workshops. He was inspiring and painted a vision of a compelling ministry that the attendees took to heart. And then they took his ideas back to our church and put them to work.
I whole heartedly recommend Tony to you.
-Rev. Hank Peirce, Unitarian Universalist Church of Reading, MA (client organization)
"Tony is whip smart and well educated on all things spiritual. He is one of those rare beings who intuits that deep down, we are all one. He is open and humorous about his own humanity and understands suffering is from experience. He is a very special soul."
-Danielle Lizotte, small group participant
"I had the pleasure of participating in a small group ministry program that Tony directed. With each session Tony drew from his expansive knowledge of diverse spiritual traditions to guide participants in deep reflection and connection to universal spiritual themes. I left each session with clarity in my mind and joy in my heart."
-Janet Davis, small group participant
“It's difficult for me to put to words how Tony impacted my spiritual journey. I feel like Tony was a gardener for the community and myself, tilling the soil, turning it over (sometimes disturbing a lot of earthworms!), amending, amending, carefully raking and then planting the best quality heirloom seeds he could find from his own soul, as he painted a picture of the brightest, most colorful garden anyone could imagine, including sunflowers. I was changed in a profound way.”
Lisa Efthymiou, small group participant
"Tony is a kind and good human. In addition to being very very bright, he is also wise (a very different quality). Tony listens carefully to everyone, and is profoundly gentle and caring. He is one of the nicest guys I know, and I recommend his spiritual guidance without reservation."
